Kang Mei yuan Yue (Resist US aggression and aid Vietnam) was the slogan for the campaign begun in the mid-1960s in support of the Vietnamese in their war with the United States. China sent vast quantities of money, material aid and manpower to Vietnam - helping with construction projects, air defence and and with troops in the fighting. In 1966, Liu Shaoqi declared in a statement that "Chinese people are prepared to make the greatest sacrifices to back Vietnamese people against the US imperialists . . . . Chinese people are ready at all times to take action deemed necessary by the people of China and Vietnam, and together they shall retaliate against the US aggressors."
